Hey all!

So I'm making a new series, FINALLY!

"The Core Six" is a slice-of-life/comedy series based on my circle of friends. It's real life stuff (we couldn't possibly make this up haha), but the series is basically a non-narrative collection of one-to-two page comic strips. There is some chronology and overarching plots or themes, but it's more or less like watching a sitcom: you really could pick up almost anywhere and not be too lost.

I'm really excited about this series, and can't wait to able to work on it this year. There will definitely be plenty in the fall semester, and hopefully some over the summer as well. 

HOWEVER. Please follow the series at my professional dA account :iconeb-illustration: , not here. I'm really trying to phase away from this page and promote that one, so I will NOT be posting page updates for The Core Six to this account. I will periodically post promotional material to point to the other account, but please follow there, not here.

Since the story is based on my life and does not contain any references to Asian culture, the final version will probably have a western reading orientation. 

See some samples of The Core Six at my professional page! The Core Six: Volume 1, Cover and The One with the Nose Booping

Hope you're all doing well!!

In Christ,
Erika

I'm creating a new dA page for professional use. This will be the account associated with my professional website, etc. Some of the content will be the same as this account, but it will also include my graphic design work, mock ups, etc. Since that will include my professional material, it will be updated more regularly than this account, if you watchers would like to start watching that one as well.

:iconeb-illustration:

My website is under construction and will be up in a few days.

UPDATE:

Website up now. Mobile site still being working on.

So, my computer crashed and my hard drive is fried. I was able to get a new hard drive and have it fixed for not a terrible amount of money, but everything on the old hard drive that wasn't backed up elsewhere is gone (including all of AAU, minus the pdf versions I use for printing). I'm not that crushed about that since the series is discontinued, but I am however dismayed about my lost homework and class notes...I have several portfolio related assignments coming up this semester and I'm not even sure what work I have available to use now, though I'm thinking I have enough. They've sent my old hard drive to data recovery, but that will cost hundreds of dollars to retrieve at a minimum, so I'll be weighing the pros and cons about trying to get the data back. 

I also lost all my software. I have discs for everything, but I'm not sure I still have the serial number for my adobe suite, which is what I use the most now and what I need for school. I have the trial version on this laptop I'm using until mine gets back from getting fixed, but I don't have my graphic tablet software with me, so I'm still going to have to work in the school lab some until I make it home. 

This semester is seriously a TON of work. :(

Though, I have to say, life is pretty excellent right now on the whole. Lost hard drive aside haha. I have an art and design internship with a small publishing company this summer, which will hopefully be good. Got my work study back at school recently. Friends and everything are great. And life is just overall been extremely blessed the last year or so. God is so good. Feelin' thankful :)

I also have a new slice of life comic series on the backburner. School is insane right now, so I don't know how much time I'll have to work on it, but keep an eye out :) 

In Christ,

THE CORE SIX: Not Boop by Half-Elf
THE CORE SIX: Not Boop
READ RIGHT TO LEFT. 
-----------
A one-page slice of life comic featuring friends and myself. This particular grouping of friends is typically referred to as "The Core Six". Yes, this actually happens like this...regularly...

I was asked to teach a manga workshop for high school students at my university. It was pretty short notice, but I decided to make a new piece for my demo rather than use something from AAU. It ended up being a pretty cool character study, because I had to think very seriously about what makes each person look like himself or herself, different body types, how clothing fits different body types, etc. It was fun. Though it definitely reminded me that I do not miss inking. It's a pain.

I'm pleased with how it turned out though, and I think the personalities came across. I sent the image to one of my friends, and soon they had all seen it and were texting me, "That is exactly us!" So I guess it did read well. 

In Christ,
Half-Elf
